Exactly. I think you are in the minority here (along with myself) who have been able to seperate out that Ralphie was actually talking about hypocracy. He wasn't ACTUALLY giving instructions to the 101st Airborne to fly sorties over Baghdad, he was yelling about people saying one thing and doing another.

Before the Vegas show, I was basically neutral about all of them. Now ...
I don't want to hear Ralphie yelling ever again. I don't find anger funny, just unattractive.
I also don't want to hear Dat's "mother's voice" ever again. While Margaret Cho's version of her mother's accent is pleasant, Dat's is screechy and grating.
I never ever want to be reminded of Tess's thong or her stripper days. Ever.
So that leaves me with Rich and Cory. I liked them both and will be happy if either of them win.

What Krom said. Ralphie's act was about hipocracy.
Also, it had a very Kinison vibe to it.
But this is a common comedic method. The exagerated rant, provoking laughter (hopefully) with a reaction that is a mix of feelings that may include:
"I can't believe he said that!"
"Right On! I've thought it but never dared say it"
"Now he's gone too far"
"Wait a minute - I agreed, but if that's the where we're headed with this thinking..."
"I'm / They're such hypocrites"
"That's sick (hahaha)"
It can be thought provoking stuff. Regardless of what "side" you're on there is a fundamentally conflicted position that America is in - we love our standard of living, yet feel for those in the rest of the world who are poorer and who we may be exploiting or living at the expense of. We are the victims of a horrifying attack that scares us, and at the same time we're the overgrown bully. Bringing incongrous thoughts to the surface can be an exciting and stimulating feature of comedy.
Now whether you found Ralphie's act funny or not, grating or entertaining, is a matter of taste. But political humor that is intended to provoke thought (rather than preach), which I felt this was, is a good thing.
